Eternals is streaming on Disney Plus, which suggests you may lastly watch the movie from the consolation of your own home. Whether or not or not you noticed it in theaters, the benefit of streaming is which you could pause and rewind the movie to catch all the main points that you just might need missed the primary time round. Whereas the Eternals plot wants loads of fixes with the assistance of future MCU adventures, it is nonetheless a must-watch movie. Eternals is the sort of early Section 4 film that may affect the MCU in varied methods going ahead, contemplating the large improvement we’ve simply witnessed. The movie actually implies we’ll see the Eternals somewhere else sooner or later. That may embody a number of useless Eternals who might return in different Marvel films and sequence.
There’s a model new rumor that claims considered one of them would possibly return ahead of we thought. Earlier than we clarify how all of that’s attainable, we’ll warn you that massive spoilers comply with under.
Why the Eternals deaths don’t matter
We already defined all of the Eternals deaths and why they don’t actually matter.
Out of the ten superheroes we get to satisfy within the film, we lose 4 of them through the course of the movie. Three of them die. Sprite (Lia McHugh) survives the battle however chooses to grow to be human. She offers up her powers, which suggests she is going to reside a daily human life and die like the remainder of us. However that doesn’t imply she’s finished with that Eternals life.
Ajak (Salma Hayek), Gilgamesh (Don Lee), and Ikaris (Richard Madden) are the three useless Eternals on the finish of the film. However their sacrifices are considerably meaningless. Initially, we’re not likely in love with these characters but. These deaths aren’t like Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) losses in Endgame.
Extra importantly, the Eternals aren’t dwelling beings. That’s why they survived the snap in Infinity Conflict. They’ll die, however they’ll’t die that simply.

Marvel can resurrect anybody
Eternals are principally superior androids which are constructed to final. Arishem engineered them to outlive for tens of millions of years. As we noticed within the film, the Celestial has loads of copies of every Everlasting. He additionally shops all of their reminiscences.
The Eternals get wiped after every emergence, very similar to you’d reset an iPhone to manufacturing facility settings. You possibly can then restore that iPhone to a earlier reminiscence backup. The identical goes for Eternals.
That’s to say that Arishem can create one other group of similar Eternals if he desires to. All he has to do is implant the unique program in new our bodies and ship them on their method to a unique planet.
Marvel doesn’t even want the multiverse to revive these misplaced characters and provides us completely different variations of them. Deliver within the multiverse angle as properly, nevertheless, and you’ve got completely different Eternals populating a unique actuality.
Lastly, there’s one different means the useless Eternals come “again to life”. That’s via prequels that target particular tales that predate the Tiamut emergence. They’ve been dwelling on Earth for 7,000 years, so there are many different tales to inform.
What’s sure is that the post-credits scene the place we get to satisfy Eros (Harry Kinds) teases extra Eternals tales. We’d even get Thanos (Josh Brolin) again.

The useless Everlasting who would possibly return quickly
Earlier than we get to any of that, we’ve got a brand new leak that focuses on one useless Everlasting, Ikaris.
The plot twist the place he turns unhealthy might need upset a few of the followers who thought Richard Madden was taking part in the main Everlasting superhero. However Ikaris can all the time come again to life with the assistance of Arishem. And the Ikaris that Marvel will use subsequent might need no recollection of the occasions on Earth.
It’s uncertain he survived the solar — at the least, we hope Marvel would not do something that low-cost.
The primary proof that Ikaris would possibly return comes from TikTok, per The Cosmic Circle. Emmy Kennard posted a video on the platform of her brother Joe. He occurs to have been the stunt double for Madden in Eternals.
Emmy stated of the video that no NDAs have been damaged, however the clip is not accessible on TikTok. She implied that Joe is presently slated to work as a “character coming again into the MCU.”
Joe solely labored as an MCU stunt double on Eternals. That means the character coming again is Ikaris. If correct, then we’d see Ikaris in a unique MCU film quickly. Nevertheless it’s unclear the place this useless Everlasting would possibly present up subsequent.
We’ll additionally remind you that Salma Hayek reportedly inked a multiple-movie cope with Marvel. We’d see a model of Ajak return sooner or later, until they solely use her for flashbacks.
